I have been to England numerous times and make do with Americanized attempts at high tea. This is the real deal. From the moment I stepped in, I was transported from Albuquerque to England. They have done a fantastic job with the nooks and decorating. The food was excellent, the tea well prepared. I like the twist of presenting a... More

If your significant other likes things like downtown Abbey, Pride and Prejudice, being fancy, getting dressed up, and of course, drinking tea then you should take them to St James Tea Room. My wife and I had a wonderful experience and if we lived in Albuquerque we would come here often for dates. I was skeptical that the food that... More

This is a truly unusual place, where private "rooms" are created by curtains. As you might imagine for a "Tea Rom", the food is a mixture of savory and sweet, all of it delicious. Wine is available as a complement to your meal.

My granddaughters, their mother and I can't enjoy the Tearoom enough. It's a wonderful relaxing place. It rivals London tearoom.

This was a great experience. The meal was delicious! The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. I felt so relax and high on life when I left. I initially felt like 2 hours would be too long, but it was too short. I could have easily spent another half hour to an hour there. I suggest the herbal teas...delicious!

Our friend has been telling us about this place for a long time! It was awesome! An over the top, old fashioned English tea. Not the kind you get in a cafe in London, but the kind you would get in a home parlor. 3 tiered tray with matching teas. Our experience was Tea in Shire. Food was excellent, tea... More

This tearoom is a great experience. The tea is excellent, the food provided with the tea is excellent, the service is excellent (no tipping), and the atmosphere is that of Victorian London. However, an actual tea in London, while very nice, did not compare to one at St. James.

I've been going to the St. James Tearoom probably once a year, starting back when it was located close to Old Town. The newer location is more spacious and has a better shop. I don't know why it's taken me so long to review, but every experience I've had with St. James has been delightful--from birthday celebrations, anniversary tea with... More

I am stunned on how to explain the most beautiful, relaxing, tea experience I have ever been too. The whole experience is served from within a beautiful old adobe building and a velvety victorian old west decor. The tea service was extraordinary and the food, which seemed only bite sized, turned out to be quite filling. The clotted cream came... More

I would have given 5 stars. The place is everything you would want for an relaxing intimate afternoon. The Decor the waitstaff the gift shop and even the restrooms make you feel like your in a different time. A ship bell rings and you are escorted to your own private room. The teas and menus are explained with a whimsical... More

The St. James Tearoom sprang up out of the recognition of a great need in society today: the need to escape the “Tyranny of the Urgent” of our modern day frenetic pace of life, to rest, reflect, and above all, foster relationships in a society that often creates shallow ones. We provide for this need by serving a full, British-style, afternoon tea in elegantly decorated nooks that are perfect for re-connecting with friends and family.

We are by reservation only so give us a call or make your reservation online.
